    Old barbers, try toa payoh lorong 1, opposite phillips singapore, there is a hawker centre, there are 2 old school barber shops there. One more is on Siglap Road just further up from where the main coffee joints like coffee club and all are. About 4 bus stops away.

    For high class old school barber shops. there is one at Shangri la hotel and another at Traders hotel. These are served by old hanainese men and their clients include senior politicians.

    I'm sorry I don't know how much they charge as I went there to discuss about shooting there not for hair cut so I didn't ask.

    That's some good info! Thanks.. I'll check these places out! Yea, it's more for shoots than for a haircut. The wet markets.. Are they renovated already or old ones?
